The number of colours in the Codiaeum variegatum is almost kaleidoscopic. The leaves are not only richly ornamented in all the colours of the rainbow, they're also beautifully curly! The plant needs high humidity. Water the plant weekly. Water more often if the soil is dry to the touch. Spray the leaves at least once per week. This prevents the leaf edges from drying out. The Croton does like light, but not strong, midday sun. The plant loves morning and evening sun.
